a million to the romney campaign and 9 million to obama's superpac. >> right, look, that's absolutely right. to put it in perspective, that's multiples of the amount of gun manufacturers, getting a lot of unwelcome press, have contributed to republicans. this is one of the biggest single sectors in donations to the democratic party. this is a pillar of democratic party fund raising, the entertainment business, in fact, number one donation to obama's super pac in the last cycle. maybe it's not surprising that the president has essentially ignored the potential effect of hollywood on our attitudes about violence, but it seems to me, any person who is looking at this honestly will reach a conclusion, yeah, we should figure out is there a connection? >> a good thing we're talking about all of these topics today. turker carlson, talk to you soon. >> thanks. >> dave: when we come back, the girl scouts are here with very special songs for christmas. ♪ we wish you a merry christmas ♪ ♪ we wish you a merry christmas ♪ ♪ we wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year ♪ [ male announce
